Top contestants move on to GRMCA competition
Our Georgia Ready Mix Team recently hosted their 2018 Mixer Truck Driving Championship, which is an annual event hosted in most of our ready mix areas. Held at our Lawrenceville Plant, outside of Atlanta, Georgia, this year’s truck rodeo had ten different obstacles that the contestants needed to navigate as accurately and quickly as possible. In addition, they had to perform a mock safety check of a mixer truck that had ten staged faults.
Kenny Ainsworth, who is the reigning champion and our Atlanta Driver Trainer, took home first place at this year’s competition, followed by Orlando Hawkins, second place, from our Cumming Plant; Lee Pierce, third place, from our Cumming Plant; and Thad Colvin, fourth place, from our Armour Dr. Plant.
The top three contestants will move on to the state competition hosted by the Georgia Ready Mixed Concrete Association on May 6 at the Atlanta Motor Speedway.
